My Best Friend

My Best Friend

Two years
Is that all it's been?
Feels like forever
My friend
My brother
You've not known me that long
And yet you know me best
My hopes
My fears
My sucesses
My failures
That pride's iron grip keeps from others
You know it all
You are my source of strength
A word of encouragement
For those days I can't go on
A hug, even if it is electronic
A note saying that you're thinking about me
Never fails to brighten my day
Surprise phone calls
Your voice echoing over the long distance
Keeps a smile on my face days after the conversation ends
You've always been there for me
Had I never met you I would have survived
But I would never have been this complete
